Texas psych-rock trio Khruangbin are releasing a new album, Mordechai, on June 26 via Dead Oceans, in association with Night Time Stories. Now they have shared another new song from it, “Pelota,” via a trippy and colorful animated video for the track. Hugo Rodrigues Rodriguez directed the video, which was written by Alvaro Sotomayor and produced by Glassworks Creative Studio. Watch it below.

Khruangbin briefly had this to say about the song in a joint press statement: “A Texan band with a Thai name singing a song in Spanish, loosely based on a Japanese movie.”

Previously Khruangbin shared Mordechai’s first single, “Time (You and I),” via a video for the song. “Time (You and I)” was one of our Songs of the Week. Then they shared another new song from it, “So We Won’t Forget,” via a touching video for the track. “So We Won’t Forget” was also one of our Songs of the Week.

Khruangbin consists of bassist Laura Lee Ochoa, guitarist Mark Speer, and drummer Donald “DJ” Johnson. Whereas previously the band were more instrumental in nature, Mordechai finds them embracing vocals prominently on most songs on the album. In terms of full-lengths, Mordechai follows 2018’s Con Todo El Mundo and 2015’s debut, The Universe Smiles Upon You. Although, earlier this year they released Texas Sun, a collaborative EP with Leon Bridges. Mordechai was recorded at the band’s farmhouse studio in Burton, Texas.
